Ebony and Ivory are two cats in the care of Danaher Animal Home are looking to find a new residence together.

Danaher Animal Home adds: "It’s true; Ebony and Ivory might not always rush to the door to shower you with enthusiastic meows and purrs — after all, who doesn't appreciate a good lounge now and then? But their subtle ways of showing affection, the trust they'll place in you, the soft nuzzling for more loving — it's a relationship worth building."
